Each poem is, as the title suggests, am elegy to a dead wrestler. For fans of wrestling these are an absolute joy to read. They are also a trip down memory lane. That’s where the other levels come into play. Lurking under the ring apron, grabbing for a chair, is Dead Wrestler Elegies theme, fathers and sons and memory.
This is a very entertaining collection. I hope that the readers in each circle won’t be put off by what’s in the other circle. Everyone should give this one try.
This is also a book as object item. It is packed with illustrations of the wrestlers.
